Development of mathematical Skills in Early Years

  1. 1. Development of Mathematical Concepts T.Mukunthan, Dept. Early Childhood and Primary Education, Faculty of Education, The Open University of Sri Lanka 26th October 2010
  2. 2. Outline •How children identify Mathematical concepts •Sorting •Shapes •Neighborhood •Symmetry •Number •Symbols
  3. 3. How children identify Mathematical concepts •During they play (introduction) •When they engage in prepared activities (reinforcement) •Then use them in real situation (Training and application)
  4. 4. Sorting •Sorting is important for mathematics as well as day to day tasks •They can sort according to shape color; size or any characteristic Eg Junk box Vegetables Fruits flowers
  5. 5. Shapes • They learn shapes through the materials they use in their day to day lives • But you have to give them experiences to develop the concept
  6. 6. Neighbourhood To learn what is in the environment •Who is behind •Who is in front •What is on the table •What is under the table etc
  7. 7. Symmetry •Helps children to understand mathematical concepts
  8. 8. Number •Same type in different pattern •Different types for same number •Introducing number with card •Number
  9. 9. Symbols 0 1 OO 2 OOO 3 OOOO 4
  10. 10. Summary • We have discussed the basic mathematical Concepts • Sorting • Shapes • Neighborhood • Symmetry • Number • Symbols
